    Anyone remember Soyo Dragon boards? Now there was some pimped PCB's.
    I had this one in a windowed Lian Li aluminium case back in the day.

    I had a different board with white PCB, a Sapphire Socket 939 board which was almost a direct clone of a DFI board but with even more memory voltage available The older boards really looked quite nice - even when Gigabyte got their colours from an email meant for the watalotigot factory and used it for their motherboards

    The Asrock motherboards with the cards to allow the use of a different CPU socket (and memory type in the AM2 upgrade) always intrigued me.

    462 to 754


    754 to 939


    939 to AM2


    Quite a few jumpers needed moving on the motherboards, but once done, you just ran it in a system like this:
